Like Brushing Your Teeth

Dellinger with Steve Prefontaine

 

“Dellinger was good in the running events.  He’d tell his boys that when you get really fit, running’s easy, running’s like brushing your teeth” Bowerman said.  “Of course, that wasn’t training.  Training is like having your teeth cleaned an hour a day”

– Bill Bowerman on Bill Dellinger from Kenny Moore’s 2006 Runner’s World article “Leading Men” about Prefonatine’s time at Oregon.
